Default **FEELER THREAD** Would U guys be interested in....

SO i was talking with a guy about this a little while ago and he wanted me to see what yall thought of this...

As most of us can admit.. The JL W7 is an amazing driver. however it is ungodly expensive and after being beat on for a few years.. ur options for bring it back to its glory days is limited. a JL Audio factory recone is as much as buying a used w7!

So the solution would be: when that 12w7 or 13w7 is done for, you can purchase a "Top Swap Kit".

So u keep the 12w7 or 13w7 motor, and purchase this kit which includes a Ti basket (10"-18"), AP cone.. and would beable to get a more common coil configuration like D1.5, D2, ect.

what do u think if these kits costs around $250? so a direct bolt on top swap where u dont have to ship ur motor anywhere for $250ish

I was thinking that this might open up a whole new door... Most W7 owners think that the W7 is the best sub period.. and know nothing of Forum/online brand (DD, DC, Fi, Sundown, ect ect) let alone custom subs!

this would let the average joe that just spent over $1000 on W7's to take their w7 motors and turn em into custom subs of whatever size and coil config they want in no time at all by them selves

but wouldn't you lose the sq of the w7? I have a feeling the softparts of the sub have just as much to do with how it sounds as the motor does. Prototypes are needed to show performance of this hybrid woofer before I would be interested. I'm not a SQ guy though, just the mind of a normal consumer.

alot of ppl that buy jl have bought new and have a warranty with the subwoofer. alot of ppl dont run the same subwoofer for 4-5 years so by the time it needs a recone due to abuse over YEARS it will prly have had 3-4 different owners that only paid 250 for it...i dont think theres a big enough market to make custom replacement tops for JL w7 only.

the 13w7 uses a 3.5" coil, which he will or already has.. no problem

yes.. soft parts have ALOT to do with the specs of a driver.. soft spiders allow for more lows (lower FS) SQ.. ect

but i will leave this very vague as im not a pro sub builder who can perfectly explain every value (BL, FS, Qes, Qms, ect)

but with the use of certain spiders and coils the driver can be made to be a Low end monster OR a SPL sub made for the meter
